Shlomit Ezer and Tal Sheffer, our Shlichim (emissaries from Israel), will be leading a discussion; "Looking at the 21st Knesset". On April 9th, amidst the furor of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s many charges of corruption, the displeasure of the Israeli secular community regarding the tight reign of the Orthodox on religious matters, and the widening distance of American Jewry from Israel, Israel is to hold early elections.
By the time of this program, the results of the election will be known. But, what will the results mean for the future of Israel, for the future of Israel and the United States? Shlomit and Tal will offer some background about this very interesting election system with the indictment of Netanyahu and what seems to be a close race between the Likud and Kahol-Lavan.
They will then open the floor for discussion. Due to the time of this event, guests are invited bring munchies.
